Land’s End to John o’ Groats (LEJOG)  1400 km

A 1400 km Audax, long-distance cycling event from the far south-western edge to the far north-eastern corner of the UK , at randonneur standard!

The LEJOG 1400 is a 1402 km cycling event sanctioned by Audax UK (AUK), set for 18-23 July 2021.

The LEJOG 1400 starts at the headland of Land’s End, Cornwall, the far south-western corner of the UK mainland and finishes at the village of John o’ Groats, the far north-eastern corner of the UK mainland.

The event is a randonnee, not a race! Those taking part have a maximum of 116-hours & 40-minutes to complete the challenging 1402 km route.

Land’s End to John o’ Groats is a longstanding route from the southwest tip of the UK to the northern tip – from Cornwall through the Cotswolds, the Midlands, the North, and finishing off in the Scottish Highlands, a windswept land of glacial lakes and an economy of trees. A succession of different terrains, architectures, and history. Celtic lands at the start and finish.

Entries are now open for the 2021 edition!

Covid-19:

We will continue to monitor the situation regarding the Covid-19 Pandemic throughout the Winter months to see whether or not the situation improves. Geographically, the event will be passing through England; Wales and Scotland so guidance from all three countries will have to be taken into consideration. More on this subject in January.



Randonnees are traditionally non-competitive/non-commercial long-distance cycling events where the emphasis is on completing the route and distance within the time limit.
